“Let me buy you Paris”

Filed under: How it works,Uncategorized — Kaddee @ 6:46 pm

Well, only kinda – I have the joy to be able to give my darling part of the Christmas season in Paris.

This year, Eid el Adha (the BIG Eid) is the second week in December. This ROYALLY messes up class schedules, as we have a week off and then come back for 3 days before giving finals! Malesh!

We have already planned our Christmas/New Year’s trip, and have been trying to figure out what (if anything) we would do for Eid.

We were avoiding other Muslim countries, as the Eid is a time when EVERYTHING shuts down for the feast – so vacationers are frequently left with few options.

Gozi expressed interest in seeing Paris (funny since every time France is mentioned in his presence he exclaims, “F**k the French!!”). The tickets are unreasonable, but so are the French! Besides, Christmas season is Paris is supposed to be MAHVELOUS!

So off we go – for the start of the Christmas season in Paris. We have our flight and a hotel, what else could we need. It is Paris, after all.
